VANCOUVER A resignation and a parting of the ways came Friday as both the imitation bulgari bulgari bracelet Simon Fraser Clan imitation bvlgari jewelry bracelet and the UBC Thunderbirds announced that they would begin seraching for new head coaches to lead respective marquee men's programs at the Lower Mainland's two major market sports schools.
On the same day that Simon Fraser men's basketball head coach Virgil Hill announced his resignation after one season guiding the team, UBC announced that it was "parting ways" with 13 year head men's volleyball coach Richard Schick.
An ex Clan player and former assistant coach, his status as a decorated alumnus and top flight coach made Hill the perfect fit to bring the winning ways back to Burnaby Mountain.
Yet just 50 weeks after his mid April hiring last season, he announced he was leaving for personal reasons.
"I would like to thank Simon Fraser University for the opportunity to come back and coach at my alma mater," Hill said in a press release issued by the school on Friday afternoon. "At this time I am tendering my resignation. This decision was a difficult one as I wanted to bring this program back to a level of competitiveness that we know is possible. My decision is based on the needs of my young family and my need to support my wife in raising our children. I would like to thank the players, my assistant coaches and the copy bulgari bulgari bracelet athletic administrative staff for their support and hard work."
Hill's first and only season was as tough as many figured it might be, based on the number of players who had left the program and limited time he had to recruit an incoming class prior to tip off for the 2015 16 GNAC NCAA Div. 2 men's basketball season.
Yet despite being competitive in so many games, the reality was a nightmare 1 19 record in the conference and a 2 24 overall mark.
While the Clan will begin yet another coaching search, the toll of having to hire a second coach in two seasons clearly does not expediate the program's goals of returning to respectability.
Players eligible to return this coming season like JJ Pankratz, Hidde Vos and Gibran Sewani would be playing for their third head coach in three seasons.
SFU parted ways with longtime head coach James Blake following the 2014 15 season.
Said SFU athletic director Theresa Hanson in the school's press release: "Virgil and I met to review and evaluate the basketball season and at that time he informed me that he has decided to resign his position as men's basketball coach to spend more time with his young family. I have accepted Virgil's resignation and I thanked him for his service to the University. Virgil is passionate about SFU and he did a good job trying to connect our program with the community. This is the same template former athletic director Milt Richards used to land Hill.
And if you watched the CIS Final 8 out here at UBC a few weeks ago, you know that there is a certain SFU alumnus out there who is young, talented, and led his team to the national title.
Whether he is available or not, that is the level of hire Clan basketball needs to make. And there are other great candidates out there.
Take Our Poll
But more on the hoops coaching search that is now underway at SFU, because over on the Point Grey campus, the news that Schick had parted ways with the Thunderbirds' men's volleyball program was very, very susbstantial.
Schick kept UBC among the nation's elite throughout a 13 season tenure in which he produced a 174 142 record, and now that he is no longer at the helm, a school without a fulltime athletic director is charged at finding his replacement.
Again, there are interesting dynamics at play and the 'Birds need to find the right coach fast, because crosstown rival Trinity Western is coming off yet another CIS championship season and is clearly the dominant program in Canada the past number of seasons.
"Richard has been a valued member of the UBC coaching team," said Director of Athletics, Performance and team support Gord Hopper in UBC's press release. "His integrity, work ethic, and passion for UBC men volleyball and UBC as a whole are admirable."
The news release from UBC was vague in terms of which side instigated the parting. And unlike the SFU release, Schick was not quoted in UBC's.
As well, Schick had put together a recruting season that was the envy of the entire country.
He secured the services of not only two of the top three players in The Province's annual Super 15 senior boys volleyball ranking sheet, but three of the top seven.
Included in the haul was No. 1 ranked Tyler Mickelberry of Victoria's Oak Bay Barbers, No. 3 Danny Aspenlieder of Vernon's Clarence Fulton Maroons, and No. 7 bvlgari rose gold bracelet fake Tyson Smith of Surrey's Earl Marriott Mariners.
As the UBC press release said: "Several players who played for Schick during his time at UBC went on to play for Canada on the national stage. Multiple players also went on to represent Canada in beach volleyball.
Schick was instrumental in carrying on the now 30 year relationship UBC men volleyball holds with the volleyball program at Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) in South Korea. Every four years the teams alternate travelling to each other campus for joint training sessions."
